About this event

A portfolio-based approach to revising, resubmitting, or repurposing excellence-based grant applications

Unsuccessful funding applications are normal given the competitive nature of most major research funding schemes, but perseverance pays off in dividends for researchers with a resubmission mindset as the success rate for proposals that are revised and resubmitted or repurposed are significantly higher than first time attempts.

This workshop will provide guidance on how to revise and repurpose excellence-based grant applications from schemes such as the ERC and Wellcome Investigator calls, Royal Society URF, IRC Laureate, Jacobs Foundation, NIH, CIFAR etc.

Funding advisers from Trinity Research Development Office will:

  • Provide guidance on taking a portfolio approach to your research and grant applications and handling critical feedback;
  • Discuss collation of funder feedback, interpretation of reviewer comments, and developing a revision plan;
  • Provide an overview and call calendar of the various funding opportunities that are well-suited for repurposing excellence-based grants.


10:00 - 10:25 Introduction to the portfolio approach, resubmission mindset and handling critical feedback by Dr Bevin McGeever

10:25 – 10:50 Interpreting feedback from the funder and individual reviewer comments and preparing a revision plan by Dr Sarah Nangle

10:50 – 11: 00 Break

11:00 – 11:25 Considering alternative funding options, an overview of broad-spectrum excellence-based funding opportunities by Dr Gillian Marmelstein

11:25 – 11:30 Q&A

After registration, TCD staff who RSVP will be sent a calendar invite with a Zoom link to join the session online.
